Pasadena Watering Restrictions Change November 1

Published on Tuesday, October 31, 2023 | 5:53 am

Pasadena’s Winter Watering Schedule goes into effect on Wednesday, Nov. 1, and reduces outdoor watering to just one day a week through March.

This change marks a reduction from the two-day-per-week limit in place from April through October.

Watering days are determined by property address. Odd-numbered addresses may water on Tuesdays, while even-numbered addresses may water on Mondays. All watering must occur before 9 a.m. or after 6 p.m.

The City has also implemented Permanent Water Waste Prohibitions. These include restrictions on watering outdoors between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., except with a hand-held container or hose with a shut-off nozzle or for brief periods when adjusting a sprinkler system. Watering during and within 48 hours after significant rainfall is also prohibited, as is any watering that causes runoff onto adjacent properties, non-irrigated areas, walkways, roadways, parking lots, or structures.

Violations of these regulations may result in penalties.

These watering regulations are part of Pasadena’s broader effort to address California’s water management issues.

The City is also investing in education and incentive programs to encourage water conservation and capital projects to strengthen the City’s water supply and infrastructure.
